Hi Luciano,

WoW!! You have captured the texture, the color and the details so well that it looks all silk.

Hello Luciano.
A beautiful snow white specimen captured in fine detail and well balanced color tones. Very good exposure which is always a challenge when dealing with all white subjects. Its wings appear to be very delicate in texture like a tiny snow flake.
Looks like you also captured some other tiny insects in your frame which I can't quite identify.

Bonsoir Luciano,

Le papillon est bien palcé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Cabera pusaria. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne soirée.


Ciao Luciano, la vecchiaia fa sfracelli da queste parti, poi non è che ce ne siano tante di foto in giro, ma anche questa ero convinto di averla fatta la critica, che poi da criticare non c'è mica niente, solo da ammirare questa bellezza in abito da sposa, bravissimo, buon lunedì, ciao Silvio

ciao Luciano,
un magnifique papillon blanc, bon rendu des teintes et de la structure des ailes.
Bonne journée
